TWO people were taken to hospital following a crash between a car and motorbike.

Police and the air ambulance were called to the scene yesterday morning to the accident at the junction of Stokes Bay Road and Jellicoe Avenue, in Gosport, close to the seafront.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said the road was closed by police officers at about 9am and remained shut until 10.30am.

He said: ‘Following the collision, we had to close the road at Stokes Bay Road to allow the casualties to be treated by paramedics.

‘The road remained closed so the scene of the crash could be investigated.’

A spokeswoman from South Central Ambulance Service (Scas) confirmed that the driver of the car was taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham with possible neck injuries, where they were assessed further.

The motorcyclist remained at the scene to be treated and the air ambulance was called.

It landed at Stokes Bay Sailing Club on stand-by but was not needed.

After being assessed, the rider of the motorbike was taken to QA Hospital by ambulance.

The extent of his injuries are unknown.

The spokeswoman for Scas added: ‘We were called to Stokes Bay Road in Gosport at 8.50am on Sunday morning to reports of a road traffic collision.

‘Two people were assessed and treated on-scene by ambulance crews before being taken to QA Hospital for further treatment.’
